llen has been my physical therapist for about two and a half years now. He has been my all time favorite physical therapist because he was not just a physical therapist but a good friend. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to knowing what tricks I'm going to do next. Sometimes it can be annoying but it is better to do the exercises the right way instead of cheating. The exercises he makes me do isn't the ordinary "baby exercises" that all therapist try either, these are hard because I actually have to move around, like walking in my walker outside on the grass or riding my bike around the neighborhood. Most of the exercises is a magnification of some kind of movement to walking. What was really cool, and I've mentioned it before, but he helped me swim with new under water headgear with out my floaties. He taught me how to relax my breathing and stay calm under water. He's kinda like the therapy whisperer. He always trains new therapists and when they aren't doing things correctly, he will calmly instruct them how to change things up so that I don't fall. Allen is also a funny guy. He likes to say the word "dude" when I do something wrong. It is funny to me and my mom because of the way he says it. The sad thing is that I won't have therapy with him anymore because of the move to Colorado. Hopefully I will have a therapist like Allen up there once my parents get everything situated.
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
